Anyone who has Alopecia may experience these following hair loss symptoms: hair loss during a short period of time on a specific side of the head-either the left or the right side, hair loss covering the entire head, which is referred to as Alopecia totalis, hair loss that leaves small, round, smooth patches in one or more areas of the scalp, which is referred to as diffuse alopecia areata, hair loss within the beard, which is referred to as Alopecia areata barbae and hair loss over the entire body, which is referred to as Alopecia universalis.
The specific cause of alopecia areata is still not defined, however, most agree that it is probably caused by genetics. The good news is that while, some might have a genetic pre-disposition to getting alopecia areata, there are things that they can do to possibly stop the onset or effectively treat the condition. As with most chronic conditions, diet plays a critical role in building the immune system, which ultimately leads to better health. The following changes to your diet just might be the solution:
- Reduce your consumption of whole grains and starchy foods, because whole grains increase insulin resistance.
- Control insulin levels since there is a correlation between insulin levels and the onset of hair loss in men.
- Increase vegetable intake - Plant based diets are a must for optimal health because vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and other green leafy vegetables contain a variety of vitamins and minerals that promote a healthy immune system and hair growth.
- Increase omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D levels, because they are excellent for regulating your hormonal levels, which is paramount to great health and hair.
- Reduce stress levels: Stress increases cortisol levels in the body. Chronically high levels can damage your overall health and ultimately, your hair.
A doctor will usually be able to diagnose alopecia areata based on examination of the areas of your hair loss and your symptoms. He may pull gently hairs near the edge of the bald area to determine whether these hairs come out very easily and to inspect them for any structural abnormalities of the root or shaft. If there is still doubt as to diagnosis, a small skin biopsy of your scalp may confirm the diagnosis. In a biopsy, a small piece of skin is removed and examined in a laboratory.
